Microsoft Visio 2010 Beta now available to the public

One of the greatest benefits of being an MVP is our chance to participate in private beta tests of the forthcoming versions of our chosen application.  Well, I have been testing the new version of Visio for a while now, and blogging about parts that we have been able to talk publicly about.  I think Visio 2010 is going to be a tremendous step forward for enterprises, so it feels good to announce that anyone can download the beta of Visio 2010 Premium edition now … just follow the link on this button:


For me, the highlights are:

  • Structured Diagramming – Containers, Lists, Connectivity API
  • Rules Validation – ability to use and create diagramming rules, like for BPMN and SharePoint Workflow
  • Visio Services – server side refreshing of data linked diagrams, SharePoint integration

There are many improvements behind the scenes to support these new features.  Try it out for yourself!

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
